Pokémon Go Community Day
at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

What’s better than getting outdoors and playing Pokemon Go? Playing it in a beautiful setting with your friends, of course! To make playing at Lewis Ginter even sweeter, we’ll be setting lures to attract even more Pokémon for our guests!

Here’s the schedule:

9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. –We will drop new lures every 30 minutes

2 p.m. –  We’ll set at least 4 more lures that will last 3 hours!

Please note: Butterflies LIVE! is a Butterfree zone (there are no Pokemon lures) so please pause your play when you enter the exhibit.

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden closes at 5 p.m. (There is a special event on this night, so please sure to leave the Garden by 5 p.m. )

Other Pokemon Go Community Days will be held Oct. 21 and Nov. 10, 2018.

Here’s more from the Pokémon website:

Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokémon GO Community Day. For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokémon in the wild. During these hours, there’s a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokémon or its evolution, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses. Celebrate what it means to be a part of the Pokémon GO community and make new friends along the way!
